Ready to get out and explore the stunning great outdoors of Colorado and surrounding states? Mild to Wild Rafting is where those families who just LOVE adventure can be part of some unique and unforgettable tour experiences!
Mild to Wild Rafting has options for ages as young as 4 years, and all adventure levels, so you can really look at the selections and pick what's perfect for you.
The trips range from 2 hours to 4 days, so whether you are a family just testing the waters with adventure, or can brave adventure like the best of them, they have something for you!
Their tours take you across Arizona, Colorado, and Utah for rafting, kayaking, jeep trail tours, as well as the tour for the Historic Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
The tours on the Colorado River and in the Southwest of Colorado are located out of their Durango base. The Durango Rafting on the Lower Animas River is suitable for those 4 year olds in a raft, and kids over 11 years can try out a kayak! There are also opportunities to swim too!
For those kids over 7 years, the Dinosaur National Monument is great for them during low waters, because not only can you travel down the state's ONLY free flowing river - the Yampa - but you get to raft through two states AND see some of the biggest river canyons in the US!
If you want to stay on dry land, don't forget to check out their jeep and train tours. Across these tours you can experience some pretty amazing scenery, spot wildlife like bald eagles, bear, and moose, and even see Colorado's most preserved mining town!

They provide transportation in quality, well-maintained vehicles back to the meeting place at no extra charge on all of the trips.
They suggest bringing waterproof, disposable cameras and leaving the video camera at home unless it is waterproof. There is no guarantee that your camera and video camera will not get wet. The best rule of thumb is, if you don’t want it to get wet or lose it, don’t bring it!
There is a picnic area available outside the Mild to Wild office and there are a variety of drinks, snacks and ice cream inside the office.
